I hate any facebook quiz*

I’ve recently been alerted to a new scourge that is tearing at the very fabric of society and the social and communicative norms on which the great Internet itself was founded. I’m talking about the facebook quiz. You probably think it’s harmless bit of fun but how wrong you are. I am convinced that every time someone takes a facebook quiz somewhere in the world a small cute cuddly furry animal dies**.

“Mike has just taken the ‘Which Couch are You Quiz’…” Really? Are you serious? Since when has a human being ever looked like a couch? How has knowing this useless piece of information enriched my life? Will I be able to sit on my friend next time I visit or bump into them in the street? I don’t think so. My life will continue just the same whether little Jonny is a leather armchair or a bar stool.

If you want to share useless information with the world, start a blog that’s what I did.

The FB quiz is a slippery slope... One day it's Panadol, the next day you're a junkie shooting up in the corner... or a couch or a celebrity... or worse still, a celebrity couch because you have an affinity with plaited hair and gold teeth.
